Apple has introduced WatchKit, its promised development SDK for Apple Watch apps. The release means we’ve learned a little more about the product (expected to ship in Q2): apps will require an iPhone in order to run until later next year when standalone apps are supported; the gesture-controlled user interface will offer Short Look and Long Look views in response to how you move your watch; and the ability to add widgets to the watch face, if you wish.
A ‘Glances’ view will offer bursts of relevant app data on demand, while if you press-and-hold-down on the watch face, you’ll get to hidden contextual demands.
